Carlo Franco ties are now at Drinkwaters. A selection of the Signature series are there, including one of the true sevenfolds, as well as the ties from the regular Como and Campagna lines. I would encourage anyone in the Boston area to check out the store to check out Chuck's latest and greatest creationl. For anyone in the area who doesn't already own some of Chuck's ties, seeing them on the internet is a very, very, weak substitute for seeing and feeling them by hand. For the more casually inclined, there is also a really cool bedford cord jacket in the store that begs to be seen. Also, Gary has kindly allowed me to do the casualwear windows (featuring Engineered Garments outerwear - sadly, the new Engineered Garments accessories, which I think are the highlight of the collections, aren't in yet), although he wouldn't let me put my battered old GTO-1 years in the windows... , and we will be redoing the dresswear windows tonight in preparation for his trunk show tomorrow. Come by and take a look. LA meets New England? It's like some bad cop/buddy movie. I'd love to get input on whether you like them and what you would like to see.
